The Scottish Chiefs


Published May 7, 2010


LibriVox recording of The Scottish Chiefs, by Miss Jane Porter.

An adventure novel about William Wallace, one of the most popular books ever written by Jane Porter. The French version was even banned by Napoleon, and the book has remained very popular with Scottish children, but is equally enjoyable for adults. (Summary by Wikipedia, revised by Kikisaulite)

Subject: Rated more on the story than the readers
The book was written for young people. For the most part the characters are flat & one-dimensional-- the good are all good & the bad are really bad. As the book was first published in 1809, I was interested in it as an example of the early development of the historic novel. The story based on the author's memories of stories told to her in childhood. It must be taken in that spirit because there is a great deal of divergence from the historic events-- ex, Robert Bruce became a leader of Scotland well before the demise of William Wallace. (Look for reputable sites, not something based on Braveheart--ex. see BBC bios of Bruce)
Wallace)

The quality of reading varies with some sections quite good. Kudos for the effort in covering such a long book.
